Welcome to Holmfirth artWEEK
The Holmfirth Artweek Committee invite you to apply for the 2015 Exhibition at Holmfirth Civic Hall. The exhibition starts on Sunday 5th July 2015. Artweek is open to all artists, both amateur and professional. Each person may submit up to two pieces. There is no selection process for the public entries, but space is limited so an impartial draw is held to select each year's exhibitors.
Holmfirth Artweek is both proud and privileged to support MacMillan Cancer Support who work hard to improve the lives of people affected by cancer by providing practical, medical, emotional & financial support; as well as campaigning for better cancer care.
This year’s featured artist is painter Philip Hill. A retired art and design teacher, Philip has always painted for enjoyment and professionally. His work is in many collections both home and abroad and he has exhibited extensively in the North of England. Philip works primarily in watercolour and mixed media. He has been a regular visitor to Art Week over the years and enjoys visiting the Holme Valley and walking in the surrounding hills.
Artweek is a local event with a national reputation. Most of the exhibitors are from this area but visitors come from all over the country to view and to buy. It is astounding how much artistic talent there is locally, it is this that makes the event such a success, and brings so many visitors to Holmfirth every year.
As Artweek is a fundraising event all work submitted must be for sale. A commission of 20% is charged on sales in the Exhibition, Market & Fringe and all proceeds go to Macmillan Cancer Support. To view all Artweek facts and figures click here.
